To build an equitable future for all people in Connecticut, policymakers must reduce policing’s responsibilities, scale, and tools. One way to shrink policing in Connecticut is through designating secondary traffic stops for low-level equipment and administrative violations and prohibiting police from making traffic stops for those administrative violations. In Connecticut, Black and brown people are disproportionately subjected to equipment and administration motor vehicle violations. The ACLU-CT supports the measures undertaken in SB 1195 that properly designate these
minor infractions as secondary violations, as this would be a vital step in limiting the role that police play in our communities.
